A newly arrived, East Coast-reared law clerk by way of the University of Virginia and Stanford Law has schooled a pack of backcountry Alaska women to win the annual Wilderness Women Contest in the tiny community of Talkeetna, the jumping off point for tours and climbs of Mount McKinley. Talkeetna community radio station KTNA reported Monday that Khalial Withen bested two Anchorage women in the finals of the weekend event.
